1. Modern Rustic Style

The use of natural materials and added touches of warmth are among the themes that run throughout these 2023 design trends.

In the kitchen, we’re seeing this reflected in a modern rustic style. This trend involves pairing natural wood cabinets and other wood details with natural stone countertops and backsplashes and incorporating a few modern elements.

Our Wenge Brown vent covers pair particularly well with wood grain textures and warm tones.

2. Elegant Farmhouse Style

Another recent trend in kitchens is a more elegant take on the modern-farmhouse style that’s been popular in recent years.

It incorporates many of the same elements, such as shaker-style cabinets, apron-front sinks, and furniture-style islands and cabinets. However, you’ll also notice the use of dramatic cabinet colors, oversize range hoods, and slab stone backsplashes.

3. Modern Spanish Style

An updated approach to Spanish style is also gaining traction. Terra-cotta floor tiles, an arched range hood with a hand-painted terra-cotta tile backsplash, and a custom island with an end-grain walnut butcher block counter and spindle leg detail update old-world style with a contemporary twist.

A modern kitchen requires modern register covers, so kul grilles vent covers are the best choice for your fresh, sleek space.

4. Warm and Soft Palettes

While some homeowners are seeking bold colors in their kitchens, others are looking for warmer and softer styles that can create a restful, relaxing atmosphere.

To achieve this, designers are embracing greige or off-white cabinets, light woods, subtle patterns, and warm bronze and brass finishes.

kul grilles offers an Anodized Light Bronze vent cover finish to perfectly complement the warm bronze and brass elements in your home.

5. Natural Materials

Natural materials have always been in style; recently, they have become even more popular.

Homeowners are opting for quartzite and other natural stone countertops, as well as white oak wood cabinets, vanities, and marble tiles.

According to some designers, the trend towards natural materials can be attributed to a growing number of homeowners who are reconsidering man-made materials, such as engineered quartz, that have been prevalent in homes in recent years. Instead, they are drawn to natural materials that bring personality and genuineness to a room.

We offer six minimalist vent cover finishes for all interior design aesthetics.

6. Blue Accents

Blue has become a popular choice for homeowners who want to add a pop of color to their interior design.

Whether it's a bold navy or a calming seafoam, blue accents can complement a variety of styles and add a unique touch to any room.

If you're looking to incorporate blue into your kitchen or bathroom design, consider pairing it with white. White can serve as a great backdrop for blue accents and helps them stand out even more.

To complete the look, consider adding a Glacier Frost White vent cover. With its clean, minimalist design, it perfectly complements blue color schemes and adds a touch of sophistication to any space.

7. Green Cabinets

The use of green is rapidly gaining popularity in kitchens, particularly for cabinets.

Both light and dark shades of green complement wood details and brass finishes, creating a warm and luxurious atmosphere. The perfect complement to your brass finishings is our Anodized Light Bronze vent cover.

8. Wooden Cabinets

Wooden cabinets are currently on-trend, aligning with the growing interest in natural materials. White oak remains the top choice, but walnut is also a popular option.

If you are choosing a lighter, natural wood, consider incorporating a sleek black register cover like Black Monolith or an airy, light option like Anodized Clear.

9. Innovative Island Seating

A kitchen island's casual seating is one of its many attractions.

While a row of stools facing the cooking area has been the traditional arrangement, some homeowners prefer alternative setups to accommodate diverse needs, such as the ability to sit face-to-face with guests or at a standard dining table height.

As a result, islands with creative seating arrangements are becoming increasingly common, such as two-tiered designs with seating for ten and lowered or raised areas for various purposes.



10. Natural Materials in Bathrooms

Just like in kitchens, natural materials are experiencing a surge in popularity in bathrooms as well.

Homeowners are opting for natural wood vanities, stone countertops (particularly marble), and stone tile flooring and walls to bring character and authenticity to their space.

Our Glacier Frost vent covers complement marble beautifully, creating a light and airy aesthetic.

11. White and Blue Palettes

Similar to kitchens, blue is becoming a go-to choice for many homeowners in bathrooms to add a pop of color to the popular all-white palette without being too bold.

12. Spa-Like Bathing Experiences

Homeowners are no longer just looking for bathrooms that are functional for bathing; they want a relaxing, spa-like experience.

To create that, many are embracing pampering features like multiple showerheads with various spray settings, such as deep massage or warm mist.

Our Anodized Clear vent covers are an excellent complement to spa-like bathrooms, as they help contribute to the oasis-like ambiance and seamlessly blend in with their surroundings. By not drawing attention away from the serenity of the space, our vent covers enhance the overall feeling of tranquillity and relaxation.

13. Bold Contrast Bathrooms

Although all-white bathroom finishes remain popular, some homeowners are inching towards bolder and darker contrasting colors.

Navy blue vanities and accent tiles are gaining popularity, and some are taking it further with jet-black vanities and other black details set against crisp white backdrops.

Brass details and wood-look tile flooring help add warmth to this classic palette, and our Anodized Light Bronze vent covers are the ideal match for brass finishings.

14. Modern Rustic Living Rooms

The desire for natural materials in living rooms has led to a contemporary rustic style that is both unpolished and inviting.

Combinations of natural stone fireplaces and surrounds, wooden beams, and off-white walls mixed with comfortable furnishings in organic whites, browns, and beiges create an updated look that feels grounded in a rural past.

15. Color, Color, Color

Design and remodeling professionals are reporting a renewed interest in bold and bright colors.

This shift away from predominantly neutral and white color schemes is often attributed to the pandemic. Homeowners seem to be more adventurous and willing to take risks to create more lively and vibrant spaces.

With the help of wallpapers featuring wild patterns and colors, homeowners can easily add personality and pops of color to their rooms.

16. Warmed-Up Gray Palettes

Despite a resurging interest in bold colors, neutral palettes still dominate homeowners' preferences. While white and wood remain popular, gray and greige palettes that exude warmth are also gaining traction.

17. Layers of Textures

Design professionals often refer to "layered texture" in décor, wallpaper, materials, and accessories.

A dynamic style, full of visual and tactile interest, layered texture is achieved by layering wood, rattan, stone, metal finishes, concrete, and various textural fabrics in a room.

18. Connecting With The Outdoors

Private access to outdoor spaces is an aspiration for many homeowners.

Sliding glass doors that open interior spaces to the outside are at the top of many dream feature lists. However, many professionals are helping homeowners achieve this connection in more affordable ways.

For example, large windows can maximize views and bring in tons of natural light, which is a less expensive option than fully glazed walls.

Additionally, a focus on natural materials, colors, and wallpaper prints that recall nature can also help homeowners feel more connected to the outside.

19. Custom Built-Ins

Custom built-in cabinets offer homeowners essential storage and display space, as well as a finished look, which is why they're one of the top design features that professionals recommend in a living room.

20. Multiple Seating Options

To create a living room that can accommodate intimate gatherings and lively parties, professionals recommend integrating various seating options that can accommodate multiple family members and guests.

21. Large Area Rugs

Another feature that professionals often recommend for living rooms is a large area rug that anchors the room and provides a starting point for building a cohesive color palette, adding texture, and creating a cozy atmosphere.

22. Wallpaper

Wallpaper is contributing to the rise in bold colors and patterns being used in homes. Search trends indicate a 57.8% increase in interest in wallpaper in 2022 compared to 2021.

23. Playful Traditional Style

With more homeowners embracing bright colors, wild wallpaper, and layered looks, many professionals are seeing a maximalist decor style take hold, specifically a perked-up traditional look that combines vintage pieces with lots of upbeat patterns and wall coverings.

Some attribute the trend to pandemic-related supply chain issues that forced homeowners to seek out locally-sourced antiques and recycled, repurposed, or reupholstered pieces with whimsical details and a pretty patina.

24. Custom Built-Ins

When storage and organization are top priorities, professionals recommend custom built-ins.

Similar to what we're seeing in living rooms, built-ins are also becoming increasingly popular in home offices to provide ample storage and display space.

25. Moody Cabinet Colors

An ongoing trend of kitchen-inspired looks showing up in laundry rooms includes moody cabinet colors. These dark, subtle tones look great in both kitchen and laundry spaces.

26. Accent Walls with Dark Millwork

Moody colors are also finding their way into bedrooms with the use of dark accent walls behind the headboard.

This approach, often accompanied by millwork, adds depth to the room, emphasizes the bed as a focal point, and creates a dramatic style.

kul grilles vent covers in Black Monolith help create a cohesive look in a space with darker tones and moody colors.

27. Beige is Making a Comeback

While greens and blues remain popular, especially in kitchens and bathrooms, warmer and lighter colors are now taking over many interiors.

Our Glacier Frost white vent covers blend seamlessly with lighter, warm palettes. Alternatively, you could pair our Wenge Brown vent cover with warmer palettes for a pop of darker color.

28. Bold Exterior Color Palettes

Whiteboard-and-batten or vertical siding remains a popular choice for exteriors.

However, recent trends also incorporate contrasting black details such as windows or trims to create additional curb appeal.

29. Outdoor Living Areas

In recent years, homeowners have expanded their use of outdoor spaces to include cooking, dining, and exercise. As always, lounging remains a top priority and these areas are receiving increasing attention, rightfully so.

30. Embracing Sustainability

Sustainable materials and natural features have been on-trend for many years, but there is now a growing focus on sustainability.
Homeowners, manufacturers, and design and remodeling professionals are coming together to promote the use of long-lasting materials, water-saving features, energy-efficient appliances and windows, and environmentally-friendly products.
